A student:
  • represents data and interprets data displays made from objects

    MAe-17SP
  • gathers and organises data, displays data in lists, tables and picture graphs, and interprets the results

    MA1-17SP
  • selects appropriate methods to collect data, and constructs, compares, interprets and evaluates data displays, including tables, picture graphs and column graphs

    MA2-18SP
  • uses appropriate methods to collect data and constructs, interprets and evaluates data displays, including dot plots, line graphs and two-way tables

    MA3-18SP
  • collects, represents and interprets single sets of data, using appropriate statistical displays

    MA4-19SP
  • analyses single sets of data using measures of location, and range

    MA4-20SP
  • uses statistical displays to compare sets of data, and evaluates statistical claims made in the media

    MA5.1-12SP
  • uses quartiles and box plots to compare sets of data, and evaluates sources of data

    MA5.2-15SP
  • uses standard deviation to analyse data

    MA5.3-18SP
  • investigates relationships between two statistical variables, including their relationship over time

    MA5.2-16SP
  • investigates the relationship between numerical variables using lines of best fit, and explores how data is used to inform decision-making processes

    MA5.3-19SP
  • recognises and describes the element of chance in everyday events

    MA1-18SP
  • describes and compares chance events in social and experimental contexts

    MA2-19SP
  • conducts chance experiments and assigns probabilities as values between 0 and 1 to describe their outcomes

    MA3-19SP
  • represents probabilities of simple and compound events

    MA4-21SP
  • calculates relative frequencies to estimate probabilities of simple and compound events

    MA5.1-13SP
  • describes and calculates probabilities in multi-step chance experiments

    MA5.2-17SP
